    Why is Rehau using the RPA course? What is wrong with their own training? Are others going to follow suit? Shouldn't manufacturers train on their own methods and applications? I have been to Johns' classes before and he does a great job but so do most of the manufacturers' guys. I guess I just don't get this whole RPA thing anyway.

    We're supporting the RPA and sponsoring the event, not giving it, nor using it as our own.

    don't get it? Why does the RPA need you to sponser their class. Why can't they promote it themselves. What is in it for them or you? What exactley does the RPA do anyway?

    What the RPA is doing...

    They have developed and continue to improve a set of installation standards, they are doing ongoing research into things that need to be known (with ASHRAE and others), they have an installer/designer certification program, and a whole lot more. They are a member-driven organization, with local chapters dedicated to the advancement of the technology and are willing to share technical expertise with anyone (unfortunately) that is willing to join.

    Granted, they may not be a perfect organization, but they're being recognized on a national basis, and as far as I'm concerned, they're the only game in town.

    The only way you'll benefit is if you join. You can stand outside looking in and complain all you want, but until you're a member, your words will fall on deaf ears. Once you are a memeber, it doesn't matter whether you're a one-man shop or a multi-facted national mega organization, your voice carries the same weight.
